Progress continued on the barges to be used for dredging this week as one of our excavators has been successfully loaded onto the spud barge. The barge had to first be prepared for the excavator by adding lumber to its deck and to its sides to prevent damage.
We understand your anxiousness to begin dredging, but rest assured that we’re drawing closer every day. There are still steps to go through on the dredge equipment itself and with several government agencies to make sure that we are in compliance with the rules that they have set forward to protect the lake and the environment. In addition, we still have our day-to-day maintenance projects (pools, mowing, culvert, etc.) to complete in-between. It takes time, but it’s moving forward.
